Smoky Sausage Rice Soup

From .
I replaced the celery and red peppers with three sliced carrots. I also used the whole 14 oz package of smoked turkey sausage.

1 T olive oil
1 med, yellow onion, peeled & diced
1 celery stalk, diced
1/2 lb smoked sausage link, cut into bite-sized pieces
1/2 t smoked paprika
1/4 t dried marjoram
pinch cayenne
salt & pepper
3 or 4 strips roasted red pepper, roughly chopped
1 14 oz can whole tomatoes, undrained
2 c chicken or vegetable broth
1/3 c white rice (med or long grain, we used jasmine)

In a medium soup pot heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the onion & celery & cook until the onion is translucent. Add the sausage & allow to brown slightly. Stir in the paprika, marjoram, cayenne and a little salt & pepper. Next add the peppers & tomatoes including the liquid from the tomatoes. Break up the tomatoes with your spoon or squeeze in your hands are adding. Add the broth & bring to a boil. Stir in the rice, cover & reduce the heat to simmer. Let simmer until the rice is cooked about 30 minutes. Check seasoning & add salt, pepper & cayenne as needed.
